Geranium care is fairly basic, whether you have them indoors or outdoors. Geraniums need 5-6 hours worth of good sun, then shade. They will take full sun but the blooms certainly fuss. Water them well, and let them dry down a little bit before you water them again, especially if it’s cool. Don’t keep them wet! Water them weekly if they’re outdoors, although potted geraniums may need daily watering in our hot weather.
Curious about deadheading? Let us help! Regular deadheading of spent blooms helps to encourage additional blooming. When your geranium blooms start to look worn out, deadhead – even if it has little blooms on it – because it’s taking food from new blooms that are going to need it! Don’t worry if it has little blooms left to go – that’s ok! Simply grab a hold of the stem and when you follow it down, you’ll see a little knobby looking knee. Once you reach the knee, just pop off the stem at that point. This process of deadheading helps the plant to make a new bloom. Keeping the old blooms off lets your new ones come up full of buds, instead of just 2 or 3. And when they start sending up a little spike, that means they’re about to seed.
As many of you know, we grow our geraniums right next door and start in January so they get nice and big. We carry tons of colors, including the Super Moon, which is one of our favorites!
